Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 27 – “Light & Dark”

HAIKU

 ~~~~~~~~~~
spring light glows
reflected off the dew drops
dark ground unveiled
~~~
spring dawn light slips past
the failing dark of night time
dawn chorus springs bling
~~~
light out of darkness
mid spring now begs the sun
inspiring life
~~~
dark moonlit night
day warmth prevails in darkness
hedgehogs snort for food
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TANKA

~~~~~~~~~
my heart succumbs
the dark can not your gentle touch hide
desire silent
light as the breath you breathe
flaming candles guide
~~~
dawn light shines through slits
the magic of spring sun
the dark of night revolts
storm black clouds conceal
dawn darkened blinded
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HAIBUN

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Early dawn, bright sunlit garden, smiles for miles. A cloudless sky, a cock blackbird singing good morning, twittering house sparrows tweet a warning as my cat springs a missed surprise. Koi carp topping, saying, “Hey, look were hungry, feed us kind sir”. Breakfast served, carp sated, next my own to grill. Thought I should I tell them smoked kippers, no, I am not that kind of guy. As I made my way back inside the light turned to dark, a storm, forecasted, now turned to hail. Breakfast cooked and eaten here ends my fishy tale.

light spring day turned
dark clouds obscured sunshine
blackbird fell silent
